Captions include "Ou est la gare de l'Est? Gare du N [east and north railway stations]." A major artist of the French Art Nouveau era, Swiss-born Steinlen was mainly self-taught. In Paris he established himself as a leading illustrator of popular journals. He also contributed a large amount of drawings and lithographs to radical press publications, often using pseudonyms such as 'Treelan' and 'Pierre' to avoid political repercussions. In the 1890's Steinlen's use of line and design led to some of the most famous posters of the Art Nouveau movement, including Tournee du Chat Noir (1896). The majority of his art continued to explore the hardships of the poor and humble. Known as "the Millet of the Streets", Steinlen had a vast influence. Among other artists both Toulouse-Lautrec and Picasso paid direct homage to his art. Ref: University of Illinois Library, USA.

Sutherland's early printmaking was greatly influenced by the work of Romantic artist Samuel Palmer, as well as William Blake. His early representational style of densely worked etchings eventually evolved into Surrealism. While serving as an official war artist during WWII his work provided a visual record of desolation. His painting "Crucifixion" (1946) is considered to be one of the most important religious paintings of the 20th century. In his later works he used anthropomorphic insect, animal and plant forms.
